Hey Dave,

Thank you for the interesting proposal.  If all I had share to the 
Windows machine was the printer I would consider doing that but as have 
to share some files too then Samba is probably my best solution.

I've received some help on my issue from others on this thread.  The 
Windows machine can now send print jobs to the shared printer but is 
still unable to status the print queue.  I'm getting closer.
